An extended reflection on the work of designer Karel Martens, originally given at Kunstinstituut Melly in Rotterdam. “A keynote talk on Karel, I chose to explore how his work—sometimes framed as an “independent” practice—is instead a case study in collaboration at multiple scales: with his family, students, and other designers; with commissioners and existing contexts; and even with paper, ink, and printing materials themselves. The talk also delved into the entangling of my professional path over the past decade in supporting and presenting his work. It’s an homage to a truly remarkable human being, from whom I learn every day.”
